Excel spreadsheet into which you can directly input the details of the items you
wish to sell. Most columns in the spreadsheet
(which correspond to an item property e.g. description, price, quantity etc.)
have notes attached which guide you in filling in the field properly.
The spreadsheet also includes an Input Wizard as an alternative to direct entry
into the spreadsheet. This allows you to set up those properties of the auction
which will not change for
each product (e.g. payment types accepted) just the once. You then just have to
set up the other item properties within the Wizard, and when you press the
?Insert Item? button those details
along with the standard field contents are inserted automatically. This is a

the form of a small application which you can install on your computer. The
interface is very similar to the Wizard on the Excel Bulk Upload Facility with
the addition of a
"Listings" tab on which you will see a summary of the items you have loaded
ready for upload to CQout. Here you may save your entries for future use, load
an existing collection or upload to
CQout using the facilities on this tab.
When you are ready to upload, you
will need to make sure you are connected to the internet. The upload process
will transfer the file you have created on your local PC to the CQout server.
Do not expect to see your items appearing on the site immediately. Your file is
checked for potential errors and suitability first and is normally uploaded
within 24-48 hrs. If there are any problems
you will be contacted by AuctionMaster to advise on remedies.
As this method involves a certain amount of
manually intensive work on your part it is really only suitable where you have
only a relatively small number of items to sell , typically say 50 to 100.
